20+ Leftover Roast Beef Recipes

We love a good roast beef dinner around here and try to cook one at least once a month. Making an entire roast beef is perfect for Sunday dinner and easily feeds the whole family.

Making one large piece of meat at the start of the week is also a great way to meal plan, save money, and avoid food waste.

You have made a delicious roast. Now what do you do with all of the extra meat and those roast beef leftovers? I always want to make good use of any leftovers we might have from any meal and usually plan my weekly menu so that I can cook once and eat twice, or even three times.

Tips and tricks

  • Substitute leftover roast meat in recipes that call for ground beef. Try it in shepherd’s pie, sloppy joes, beef enchiladas, leftover roast beef chili, roast beef pot pie, or an easy beef stroganoff.
  • I love to make my own beef stock at home. If I happen to be making a bone-in roast, I use that. Sometimes you can find beef bones at the grocery store too.
  • Unsure what size of roast to buy? This can be tricky, especially when you will be feeding a large group. A good rule of thumb is to allow a half-pound per person.
  • Any time you are cooking meat, it is important to be sure it is cooked thoroughly. The best way to do that is with an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat.

Make your Sunday roast a bit larger than usual this week and take advantage of all of these fantastic leftover roast beef recipes in your weeknight dinner plans. So yummy!
